I've received an email from some part of Reuters, it seems to be circulating with a photo of a little boy. It is saying that he is lost and they don't know where to find any of his family, so to forward it to every you know until someone in the world recognises him. Should I be forwarding it? There is a contact number and an email address for phuket-inter hospital. Does it sound genuine? If so - I'd like to email it to any of you who would be willing to forward it as well

No, he was found in December, I don't know why it's going round now!

Hang on, will find link.

Here .

Look at his face though - he looks totally numb - what had he been through, poor little scrap?

bless him. Thanks JanH. Will have to send that link to everyone it has been emailed to along with me!!
Nice to see a happy ending for him though

I did that too, ZC, but I got 7 or 8 postmaster returned messages - the person who sent it to me must have a very out-of-date address book!

I would love to know how he is doing now, in fact I think I will go and have a google on his name (am supposed to be working...)

I thought he had already been reunited, poor little chap. I will tell the colleague who is carpet-bombing us with the info that all is well.
